Business Litigation

Shapiro, Croland, Reiser, Apfel & Di Iorio, LLP has a broad trial practice with an emphasis on complex commercial litigation. The firm’s complex commercial litigation practice encompasses all aspects of commercial relationships, including disputes involving the Uniform Commercial Code, contracts, business dissolutions, leveraged buyouts and other financial arrangements.  Our attorneys are equipped to handle matters of all sizes and degrees of complexity, and recognize the need for prompt service and creative problem solving, combining their analytical and mediation skills with client advocacy and trial experience to meet our clients’ goals.

Eric D. Reiser and the attorneys of our firm work closely with our clients to develop and implement a strategic litigation plan, establish goals, and expectations.  Our New Jersey business litigation attorneys strive to achieve our clients’ goals and objectives by utilizing a forward thinking and proactive approach founded on Preparation, Preparation, Preparation.

The types of disputes that our New Jersey civil litigation lawyers regularly handle include:

  • Breach of contract
  • Closely held business disputes
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Chancery Court litigation
  • Orders to show cause/emergent relief
  • Partnership disputes
  • Real estate & land use litigation
  • Fraudulent asset transfers
  • Receivership actions
  • Repossession of secured collateral
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Foreclosure
  • Will & probate disputes

Our business litigation attorneys regularly appear before New Jersey state courts, federal courts, bankruptcy courts, and appellate courts. Often, state court litigation spills over into bankruptcy court when a defendant attempts to invoke the bankruptcy automatic stay to delay the trial or continuation of a state court case.  Our law firm’s extensive experience in bankruptcy matters enables us to be an effective advocate for clients who require assistance navigating the complexity of bankruptcy proceedings.
